It's time to do before and after shots! I can see I'm going to have to plan these better, because I've had to search hard for a decent before shot, and the comparison isn't as easy as I'd hoped.
Clearly, tidying would make the after shot look even better, but that wouldn't be authentic. Cropping is quicker.
Our lounge, after we accepted some wonderful furniture from my sister. I couldn't let go of all our old furniture. Because it's nice to have all that seating, right? And it fit, sort of. And now?
The big tub chair is gone (from the house, not just from that room). My display cabinet is much less cluttered. Fewer knickknacks and cookbooks, and one of those 3 drawers is EMPTY! I still have my eye on you though, cabinet...
The big speakers are gone. The plant is on a TV stand rescued from its unused TV. The TV stand tidies some toys away.
Net lost seating? Absolutely zero. That extra seat was always cluttered.
Pan to the TV corner of what seems like just yesterday. Oh my god.... well, the kids looked good.
Note: toy libraries are a great idea. If you don't already have too many toys. Let's move on quickly.
I can open the door, I can open the blinds.... whenever I want. Can you feel the excitement?
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I do.
And here's a photo of our "out basket."
Yes, it's all gotta go...I'm so proud of us!
